Summary

3D strategy at it's peak on Atari ST

The Good

This game really puts you in the hot seat. The fact that you can choose between a quick action-game or the whole strategic affair is just great. If you own an ST with a double-sided drive (1040 and up), you are in for a musical treat when the pre-game loading has stopped. The action is bang-on, now and then a bit frantic, but just so right for this game. The strategic side is equally impressive.. choosing which island to visit(conquer) depending upon your fuel-levels, having to ship your stockpile forward when time progresses.. and having to outsmart the enemy carrier attacking your supply-lines is just dead-on.

The Bad

actually steering the carrier can be rather tedious without time-acceleration option

The Bottom Line

Definitely worth a go, absolutely addictive if you can get the hang of it. I actually tracked down several version of this game on the internet just to get to play it once more.
